Anyone making it past three will also gain a BlackBerry PlayBook, while the first hundered participants to get between five and ten gaming apps approved will also receive a Dev Alpha Device.

The virtual drive will have webcasts and experts from the company on hand to help, specifically concerning potential issues with the upcoming platform ahead of it's expected first quarter launch.
